There were times when finding credit was difficult, and money lenders were outright wicked. Remember Shylock from Shakespeare’s, The Merchant of Venice, or for instance our local Sahukaar. But today the scenario is different. Many financial institutions are competing with each other to lend you money.
The biggest advantage of a personal loan is that it is an all-purpose loan. So you can take a personal loan to take your family on a trip to Australia, or buy the latest Sony LCD TV, or even to pay off your credit card dues. Your bank doesn’t care as to how you use the loan amount sanctioned to you.
